Paul Pierce SF WAS 2 Days

Pierce (toe) will take the floor Wednesday in Phoenix, the Arizona Republic reports.

Discomfort on Pierce's left big toe spurred a DNP on Tuesday, but just one day later, he'll suit up in some capacity. In his previous four outings, he achieved double-digit points, averaging 15.5 points (on 50 percent shooting), six rebounds, 2.3 assists, and two treys in 31 minutes.

Pierce (toe) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Pierce sat out Tuesday's win over the Lakers with soreness in his toe. He's in jeopardy of missing a second straight game, though a final decision on his status may not come until close to the 10:30 PM ET tip. Otto Porter moved into the starting lineup in Pierce's place Tuesday.

Pierce (toe) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Lakers.

Rasual Butler, Martell Webster and Otto Porter should all receive a bump in minutes with Pierce sidelined, and it is a pretty nice matchup against the Lakers' shoddy defense. Consider Pierce questionable for Wednesday's game in Phoenix.

Pierce (toe) missed shootaround and is quesionable to play Tuesday against the Lakers, the Washington Post reports.

Pierce is dealing with a nagging sore left big toe, which has flared up periodically since the beginning of December. It doesn't look to be anything that will keep him out on a long-term basis, but with the struggling Lakers as the opponent, Pierce may take the opportunity to gain some extra rest. The veteran has played in all but two games this season, and is averaging 12.8 points in just under 27 minutes per game.

Paul Pierce SF WAS 16 Days

Pierce came through with 22 points (7-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with six rebounds in 32 minutes in the win over the Bulls on Wednesday.

Pierce had not scored more than 14 points in six previous January games. He took a few extra shots and was able to convert on all of his field goals within the arc. Pierce remains a deep-league play only.

Paul Pierce SF WAS 19 Days

Pierce scored 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), backed up by three assists, and five rebounds in 25 minutes on Sunday.

The 16-year veteran has cared out a role on Washington for his three-point shooting and professionalism on a young team. However, looking at his numbers over the past 15 days, Pierce is returning top-30 value. Stretching that over the last 30 days he's barely giving back top-50 value. Pierce is an asset that undoubtedly Washington needs. However, there are more likely options that can provide better upside on your waiver wire.

Paul Pierce SF WAS 21 Days

Pierce (rest) scored seven points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added four rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block.

After missing one game, it was not a great return for Pierce. At this point in his career, Pierce's production is too low, and he is is only valuable in very deep leagues.

Pierce will sit out Wednesday's game to rest.

It looks like nothing more than a maintenance day for PIerce, who has appeared in 10 consecutive games. Second-year wing Otto Porter will get the start in his place.

Paul Pierce SF WAS 27 Days

Pierce scored just five points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with one rebound and one assist in a season-low 17 minutes Saturday.

This was the third time since Christmas that Pierce has failed to score in double-digits and the Wizards are clearly limiting his minutes, playing him over 30 minutes just three times in December. He has, however, hit a three-pointer in 14 consecutive games, but with the minutes being limited, his value is capped in standard leagues. If you can take the good with the bad, he will still have productive games, but just be prepared for nights like this.

Paul Pierce SF WAS 1 Month

Pierce (toe) returned to the starting lineup Friday after missing one game, scoring 14 points (6-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT).

Pierce had a great shooting night from inside the arc, considering how bad he was from three. However, his toe doesn't seem to be bothering him, considering he played 32 minutes in a win over the Heat. Pierce should be good to go for all owners now.
